Things go Bump in the Night

Its 4am, do you know if your child is in bed? Mine wasn't.

I heard a loud BAM and went into his room; there he was, sitting on the floor with a bewildered look on his face. Poor baby had fallen out of bed. The bed rail had broken a few months ago and since Nash really doesn't need it anymore (I thought) I didn't replace it. One end still fits under the mattress, but the other just hangs there. He must have rolled off at the end by his pillow.

He fell back to sleep, but momma didn't. I wanted to be his bedrail.....
